The road to US Open continues. Besides points and prize money, some other things are at stakes this week.
Naomi Osaka has promised to donate all her prize money from this week to Haiti and Ons Jabeur has promised (well she said maybe ) to get the JJ Wolf haircut if she wins the tournament.

Dominance can be boring for adrenaline junkies.

I think Barty is quite fun to watch actually. Not typical WTA type fun, and not as fun as watching Polina Leykina against Anna Siskova slug it out in the middle of nowhere, but fun nonetheless.
Report edy August 21, 2021 5:37 PM BST
Though Leykina is mostly fun to watch because she is emotional and berates herself all the time...not so much for her game.

Today in the final of the M15 in Bratislava: Fabian Marozsan retired when his opponent was serving for the match at 3-6,6-1,5*-4 40-15

Classic retirement timing.
Report edy August 22, 2021 6:49 PM BST
I do not know if Marozsan was actually badly injured and couldn't be out there for one more serve. He had lost 11 of the previous 12 points when he retired. Still strange to retire in a final with your countryman being one serve away (with whom you have also played doubles in the past).

The on-court MC informs spectators that Kyrgios has withdrawn. Some harsh boos in response. Andy Murray will play lucky loser Noah Rubin in 20 minutes. Rubin only lost his qualifying match against Lucas Pouille about 25 minutes ago.

He was drawn as a lucky loser and he's scheduled to come out again in a minute to play Andy Murray.
